As a memorial to my dad and mom I would like to put a photo onto a plate. How do I do this?
You could decopage it on, or you could check with places that print photos and see if they could do it. I know I have seen ads that these companies can put photos on mugs, etc., so I would imagine they can do it on plates too.
I have done this with a certain kind of printer paper I got at one of the craft stores. It was a few years ago so I don't remember the name of it, but it has a sticky back and feels like cloth. Print it out on your printer, place the plate on top to trace around the area to be covered, and cut it out - peel off the backing (just a little so you can get it placed properly) then pull the rest off.
I have seen these done by printing the picture on light card stock. Use a clear glass plate. Cut the picture to fit in the center of the plate where it will lay flat. You will be working on the bottom of the plate. Put a thin layer of decoupage medium in area where picture will go. Lay picture on medium and use fingers to smooth out and eliminate any air bubbles. Then put another coat of decoupage medium over back of entire picture. After the medium dries thoroughly you will see the picture through the glass on front of plate.
Check out www.webshots.com They offer photos on cups etc. I'm not sure about plates. Good luck. GG Vi
I want to transfer a picture to a plate. How do I do that?
You can go to just about any photo department at any pharmacy or large franchise, and tell them what you want, and they will probably pull out their catalog and show you what you can do. I had one made onto a plate from Walmart I believe about 2 years ago.
Just go to any decoupage site online and you'll find all the instructions you need and it will be very inexpensive.
